I worked late last night and am doing the same tomorrow, so Carol has said she would take the girls so I can do so.
Ryan is working as I type this and the girls are being good little girls. (Which can be rare these days. They just want to fight with each other).
Kenzie went to safety town yesterday and I suppose it was fun, although I can't get her to tell me about it.
Maddie has declared that my mom is "My Nana No Your Nana!" I was talking to her on the phone and told Maddie that I was talking to Nana and she told me like it was! Too cute.
I have to re make the sign for the concession stand. Ryan thought he would roll it up for storage before the glue got dried and you can imagine what happened.... Good thing I bought several pieces of posterboard!
Grandma is back at Amanda's and I will be seeing her in about a week! Can't wait for that!
Mom and Pop are racking their brains with Pappy. He has been ill for quite some time and as a medical professional, mom and I both are trying to find out why he is holding on. He has been on hospice for a while and most days he is completly unresponsive, but some days he is lucid and asking where Nana Red is. As you all know, Nana Red (Pappy's wife) passed away last July, and we weren't expecting Pappy to be much further behind her, but he is continuing to hold on to the last thread of the life rope Jesus has given him. Why we don't know, but please do pray for the family in this time.
That is enough for now. More to come!

"Hey Dawn!" Renee said
"What's up Renee?"
"I need a favor"
"What ya need?"
"If you work tonight second shift, I will give you tomorrow off"
"Sure I'll do it"
Why do I let myself get into these things? But the good thing is that anything over eight hours a day is paid overtime, so I got paid a lot more to work last night second shift than I would have to worked today.
I don't really have an update other than the insane day I had at work last night.. Kenzie is at school, Ryan is running to spring hill for a few minutes, and I am here with Maddie. Thought I would sneak in a few minutes on the blog.

You Are "Like a Virgin"
If you were transported back to the 80s, your life would be all about absorbing everything.
You are practically a virgin (or born again virgin) when it comes to the 80s, and all things 80s are very interesting to you.
You would sign your heart out to every Madonna hit and memorize every line in the Breakfast Club.
You'd have the biggest record collection, roller skate like a champ, and would be a dead ringer for Molly Ringwald or Kirk Cameron!

MORE NEWS: things have calmed down majorly in our house. we are working through some struggles, and hopefully things will continue being calm...
now for a count for kenzie's party... just for my own good... there are going to be:
kenzie, maddie, me, ryan, derrick, amanda, grandma, riley, shelby, yaya, pappy, dave, and gayle (we believe), angeleena (and her 2 daughters), danielle (and her 2 boys), amanda (the neighbor's daughter), gretchen, tim, zoey, and maybey raven, dave and crystal with micheal, and those are the ones that have for sure said they would be there... so much fun! hope that brooklyn, channel, and aaron can make it too!
now for an update on the food:
CONCESSION STAND it is! We are doing hot dogs with the following toppings:
relish, onion, ketchup, mustard, slaw, chili, and a small can of kraut for anyone who may like their dog with any of those! Nacho's will be there as well as popcorn, juice boxes, soda and bottled water... then cake and the ice cream will be stored at carol's house and then when it is almost time for cake and ice cream, ryan or i will leave for a few minutes to go get it so it doesn't melt!
Kenzie is wanting to dress like a cheerleader, so i am on the hunt for used cheerleading uniforms, but not having much luck as new ones are out of this world expensive, so Karen, if you have any tips since you are a cheer coach, please let me know.... and that is that!
Your Colors Say You Are Caring
When you are at peace, you are:
When you are moved to act, you are:
Giving and warm
When you are inspired, you are:
Spontaneous and adventurous
When your life is perfectly balanced, you are:
Totally in the moment
Your life's purpose is:
To live a passionate life

We have selected High School Musical for the theme, so with that comes invites, and major planning. I still have some red fabric that Amanda gave me over a year ago, so I am going to use that some how in the decor. I have streamers to hang, then I was able to get some red, black, and white pom pom's to use or to let the girls play with at the party. I am looking for some deals on basketballs now and then planning the food. Since the movie was centered around a basketball team, we are trying to center the party around a basketball game. I just spoke with Amanda and we have pretty much decided on concession stand for the food area! We are going to do hot dogs, chips, soda, juice, popcorn and the like for the food area! So much fun. If you have more ideas, please comment me and let me know what you think!
